A highly popular Brisbane suburb, St Lucia is dominated by the main campus of the University of Queensland.Full summary A highly popular Brisbane suburb, St Lucia is dominated by the main campus of the University of Queensland.

It’s located just 4km from the Brisbane CBD and has a significant amount of Brisbane River frontage.

Aside from a high student population, the area draws a diverse crowd of wealthy professionals and families.

St Lucia will always be a popular area for students, but its leafy, riverside settings – conveniently close to the CBD – mean it will continue to have a future as a family area as well.

However, there are signs that affordability constraints are starting to bite.

With a median house value of $1.03m, there haven’t been that many takers during the past 12 months.

This is significantly lower than the 7% growth the suburb recorded the previous year, according to OnTheHouse.com.au.

Units are more affordable at under the $500k mark, but the growing supply near the river is weighing on prices.Close
